Have A Safe, Happy Holiday Season!

Merry Christmas! Hanukkah! And Winter Solstice!

It's sad but true. It's very hard to keep safe and look out for others, while celebrating the holiday season this year. With the Covid-19 pandemic, that's especially true, here at home and with our family too! 

Recently, a case was confirmed in our Toronto condo building. My mom is at a nursing home up in Northern Ontario, where an outbreak has occurred. My sister works at another one that's had an outbreak too! 

Meanwhile Janet and I would love so much to see our little grand daughter. So too the rest of our family, to celebrate just like we do every year. But it's just not safe! 

Ontario's province wide lockdown won't come into effect until Boxing Day. It's way too late! Amongst the mad Christmas rush, there's been conflicting messages and total chaos about we should and shouldn't do. Plus lots of  confusion over home gatherings and exchanging gifts, with our families, loved ones and significant others, especially come Christmas Day. 

The lockdown is already supposed to be in full effect here in Toronto. But far too often, that's not actually been the case. It's very frustrating and divisive, with everybody thinking they know best what to do.

So rather than argue with our family and friends, I'm just sticking to the "Holiday Planning During Covid-19" instructions from Toronto Public Health. Following it whenever issues arise on the home front, however unpleasant that might be @ To.Ca PDF @ To.Ca [1]

Here's a few clear pointers from the guide:

Keep gatherings to the people you live with.

Connect virtually with others whom you don't live with.

Exchange your gifts wearing a mask, outside the front door, 2 meters apart.

Plus there's lot 's more ......

Better safe than sorry! Sure, it's a real bummer, but I hope this helps you too. So that we'll all be around to party together again, during the much, more happier and festive holiday seasons ahead!

Happy Holidays!
